Dépèche transmise le 20 avril 2011 par Business Wire

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) welcomed today’s National Mediation Board (NMB) single carrier ruling for the Stock and Stores classification at the recently combined United Airlines, Continental Airlines and Continental Micronesia Airlines.

“The IAM is looking forward to welcoming all Stock and Stores employees as members of the Machinists Union.”

“We are very pleased with the NMB decision,” said IAM District 141 President and Directing General Chairman Rich Delaney. “The IAM is looking forward to welcoming all Stock and Stores employees as members of the Machinists Union.”

The NMB will proceed to address representation of the Stock and Stores craft or class following a 14-day period from today.

The IAM represents United’s 785 Stock and Stores employees while Continental’s 233 Stock and Stores employees, called Material Specialists, are unrepresented.

The IAM presented the NMB with sufficient evidence that the Continental Stock and Stores employees wanted to join the IAM last fall. The Board combined that case with the current single carrier application pending at the Board. Continental Micronesia’s 17 Stock and Stores employees are represented by another union.

The IAM is the largest airline union in North America. More information about the IAM campaign is available at www.voteiam.com.
